If you're interested in it, I'd suggest finding your Saison Dupont somewhere dark -- picked up a light-struck bottle just the other day. Not to say your case is wrong. Are you (or othes on the BT) certain this is from skunking? I've quite enjoyed Saison Dupont in the past & pretty much devoted ...

Had one just the other week. While not my fave pumpkin beer, it was quite fine, as has been every other Black Creek bottle I've purchased.

Stranger still is that the LCBO info line only regurgitates what one can find on the website. At the very least, I would have thought they could let me know which stores would be getting some in.

Just placed an order for a case myself; would be willing to split if anyone here in TO wants some.

That's what was posted; I'm too Family Day'ed out to look for the original quote though. :D

While I enjoyed it, I thought it had a thin mouth-feel. Can't see it aging well, but would be happy to be wrong (and have someone else put the point to me with a glass).

Out of curiosity, what would you consider proper age for a Samichlaus? I've a few with a couple years on 'em now.

That would be Irish. When it comes to Scotch, I've found Abelour to be well rec'd, and their A'Bunadh is a nice cask-strength whisky.

Ha ha....had been told yesterday by someone working the floor that there would only be 10 bricks, and so didn't hang around early this morning when I dropped by to find 10 ppl ahead of me.

I'd be pissed off if I weren't so sleep deprived. :D

Polishing off my (last?) bottle of '02 Fringante. As to be expected, next to no carbonation when compared to a new Unibroue ale, but there's no mistaking whose yeast is at work here. Had I known it was there, I would have been wise to open it a couple of years ago. Still packs quite the punch, but t...
